I thought I read in The Cake Bible.....the thing is corn syrup has h2o in it, unlike straight glucose. I thought it was about 1 T per c. ....that would throw off any sensitive recipe. And a recipe calliing for glucose is probably a non-sensitive recipe.


But if you made something like a flavoring syrup or then it's not a problem. I assume you follow....it depends upon the item being made.

In what recipe do you wish to make this substitution?

oops, I should have proof read myself.

Should be, "And a recipe calling for glucose is probably a senstive recipe".

I want to replace it in a Spanish recipe for a kind of a halva or nougat. I will try it but I think anyhow I"ll buy glucose.

you can reduce corn syrup if you are in a real bind by 20%.
simply simmer to cook out the water. careful not to color the syrup!
